《木兰先生》 青少年戏剧 Mr Magnolia - A Story about Home
Synopsis
War is raging. The military has come to the villages to round up men to fight in the battle. Magnolia, the daughter of an aged herb gatherer, bravely offers to take her father's place by disguising herself as a man. In a dangerous time and in a place where no woman is allowed, how will Magnolia survive? 
 
Mr. Magnolia retells the classic story of Mulan, a brave woman who disguises as a man to take over her father's role in the military. In this unique rendition, Mr. Magnolia and her home folks are not fighting a usual war against foreign invaders--but against an ambitious emperor's deceptive quest for greatness.
 
Adapted from a true historical event in China's Northern Wei period (386-581 A.D.), Mr. Magnolia combines political intrigue, history, poetry, and a cast of talented children.
 
Children and grown-ups are all welcome!

战火缭乱。军队到村里每家每户召男丁入伍征战。
木兰的父亲一生采集药草,且年事已高,如何征战?木兰决定女扮男装,代父从军。在这兵荒马乱,无女性立足之地的时代,木兰将如何生存?
 
《木兰先生》将重新诠释这位女子代父从军,并且像男子般英勇奋战的经典。木兰先生以及他的同僚对抗的并不是平时战争中的外来敌人,而是他们自国的领袖。领袖野心蓬勃,想要在历史中创下佳绩,于是欺骗了他的人民。
 
此演出参考了中国北魏时期(386-581年)的真实历史事迹,融入了当代政治局面、历史及诗词。
 
此剧本初稿在唐嘉猷先生的引导下,于吴江太湖大学堂的学生一同即兴创作、开发。
